Corn picker expected to recover after workplace injury in Minnesota
At least one person suffered physical injuries in central Minnesota after he was involved in an accident that took place while he was doing his job as a corn picker, an October 2 article of SCTimes reported.
Information coming from the authorities of Wright County Sheriff’s Office revealed that the 37-year-old Watkins resident had his hand pinned by rollers on October 1 while picking corn. The accident reportedly occurred after the man attempted to unplug the machinery he was using. The pressure of the rollers crushed the hand of the worker and rescuers were able to free him after disassembling the machine, which took about an hour and a half. The man’s injuries were believed to be non-life-threatening in nature.
